2007 Outback Cruise Control

Recommended Posts

I have a 2007 Outback Auto S 2.5- the engine warning light is on and the cruise control is flashing on the dash.

I have had diagnostics run several times and there isn’t a fault reported. It gets reset but the warning comes back

I want to change the switch, are the cruise control switch connectors universal? I found one for a Forrester on ebay will this fit the connector on my Outback?

I’m guessing that because the audio and cruise control are on the same wiring it has limited interchangeability? Or are they universal with audio/ cruise control wiring?

The cruise control is disabled, and the icon will flash due to the check engine light. This is standard, it does not mean there is a fault with the cruise control. Maybe try a different code reader/garage?

I had this same thing happen on my gen 4 Legacy, turns out it was a duff O2 sensor.  Like 4eyes said, the cruise control is disabled by the CEL, so could be a problem anywhere.  If I remember correctly, I couldn't find any codes when I ran it on a generic scanner, but when I took it to a local specialist they did manage to pull a code.
